portman on thursday, introducing romney in defiance, ohio, to a huge crowd, said, "we have got to talk about this auto bailout thing tonight." they are still trying to explain it. >> can romney win without ohio? >> yes, but it is a tough one to reach. if obamacare is ohio, he will carry it was gone -- if obama carries ohio, he will carry wisconsin and it will be a difficult reached for romney. >> a virginia? >> virginia will still probably end up in obama's camp. >> i just look at the polls when we started the program. romney is up by one point or two. >> you can pick your polling and in virginia, because another shows that obama is up in virginia. but he has been running strong in virginia, and with the heavy onslaught by romney, it still shows the northern virginia area, which will be very important, but much supports barack obama. >> new hampshire could be in play. >> new hampshire traditionally was a republican state did it only became a presidentially democratic relatively recently. >> when bartlet came along. "west wing." >> unless he gets a surge that covers most of the states,
's look at governor romney's schedule. it's ohio today. it was supposed to be virginia today, but he moved all of those events to ohio because of the storm. look where he's spending monday. it's the midwest. it's where they feel they have to pick off a couple states. it's not just ohio. it's ohio plus something else. >> as i talked to the romney campaign, they were emphasizing this momentum. they feel the debates gave him a second look to carry him through election day. obama folks, look at the electoral map map. we could be in for quite a finish if they are both right. >> they are both right. we talked the popular vote. polling out today, if you look at the president's lead for instance on the west coast in california, the lead has been cut in half. i have done back to the envelope map. romney makes up 6 million, 7 million, 8 million votes. he could pick up a bunch of votes in the non-battleground states. go to the battleground. i'll show how easy it is. if you take today's polls, the president is winning in virginia. wisconsin is on the ground. it leans toward the president. now you give
. >> at an ohio rally, mitt romney wrapped up remarks to urging those able to help relief effort. >> on the eastern coast of the nation, a lot of people are enduring difficult times. the hearts and the prayers go to them. as we think how tough it will be there. the family in harm's way that will be hurt in the possessions or perhaps something more severe. >> romney canceled events over the weekend. tonight in wisconsin and tomorrow. >> this looks like another time when we need to come together. all across the country. in ohio, give of our support to people who need it. >> i am asking you to look for way to do that. >> they replaced online fundraising solicitation to links to the red cross. romney has been in touch with chris christie of new jersey and bob mcdonnell of virginia. natural disasters spotlight and test the incumbent response. often overshadowing the political challengers. the latest gallup national tracking poll shows romney at 51% and president at 46. in ohio, which could decide the election, a new rasmussen tracking poll has romney ahead 50 to 48 in a buckeye state
. republican mitt romney will campaign today out of the storm's path in the battleground state of ohio yesterday offering these words for those in sandy's way. >> i think that right now some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm about to hit the coast, and our thoughts and prayers are with the people that find themselves in harm's way. >> what remains to be seen is how this october surprise will impact an election that is now just eight days away with early voting already under way. we want to get straight to the latest update, and for that nbc news meteorologist dillon drier joins me with a look. not much has changed? >> that's unfortunate. it is still a strong category 1 hurricane at this time, and even if it changes into something post-tropical as it makes its way towards the new jersey coastline, this is a strange hybrid between a once tropical system, a hurricane right now, and then transforming and taking on more of the characteristics of a nor'easter. this makes this an unprecedented type of storm. it starts as a hurricane and developing into this nor'easter.
, it is simple why governor romney is doing so were better in ohio. people are focused on the economy and jobs and mitt romney has a land that is pro growth and pro jobs and president obama doesn't. when you look at the last four years they are disappointed. we are living through the weakest economic recovery since the great depression, there are 22 million americans struggling to find works and 3.5 million more women in poverty. take home pay has gone down $4,300 per family. president obama has the glossy brochure and i have looked at that brochure and i layed this role of obama during the debate preparation and it is more of the same. you can argue we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and it hasn't worked by president obama's own measurement, saying unemployment would be 15 percent lower if we passed the stimulus package. he said economic growth today would be two-thirds higher than it is. so, it hasn't worked. the one thing he does have in his new proposal is to raise taxes. yes, he wants to raise taxes on a million small businesses including a lot in ohio, and that will resu
with senators from four key swing states. republican rob portman of ohio, who played president romney in the debate represent and 18 electoral votes are in play en a state obama won in '08, by 4.6 points and now leads 2.3 points in the latest real clear politics average of recent polls and republican ron johnson of wisconsin, 10 electoral votes at stake and obama won by almost 14 points, last time, and, is now leading by 2.3. and democrat mark warner of virginia, obama won its 13 electoral votes by 6 points, four years ago and now is tied with romney. and, democrat mark udall of colorado, obama won the 9 electoral votes last time by nine points and the race there is now dead even. senator portman, let's start with the state i guess most people think may decide the race, that is ohio. the obama camp says they have the big edge in early voting in your state and also note that they have 137 campaign offices around the country, and the romney camp has only 39. >> well, chris, first of all, you mentioned the real clear politics average in ohio, 2.3%, in the president's favor and now it is
%. in most polls, the president had been leading governor romney in ohio. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital editor and also the host of the show "power play." chris, some events are being canceled because they are not being affected by hurricane sandy, but how many times have we talked about the likely voter polls, talking about how it will really matter or not romney loses ohio. no republican has ever won the white house without it. rasmussen came out with a poll showing that governor romney is taking the lead their. >> well, yes, here is the thing. we have seen all along that mitt romney could not quite close in ohio and he has continued to do better in places like florida and virginia. ohio has posed a difficulty, he couldn't close the gap with the president. what we have seen has been a slow-motion surge from mitt romney. it started after his first debate and has moved forward. it has been not a landslide or explosive, but what it has been a steady. that is what mitt romney has to like is that he he continues to gain ground. we know that ohio is essentially a tie. but before the
of the political universe is ohio. president obama and governor romney are locked in a tight race to reach the magic number of 270 votes and ohio could tip the scames one way or the other. that's why the candidates are putting time and effort in the buck eye state . joining me senior political analyst for the washington examiner michael moran. >> good to be with you. >> this election may come down to ohio. what does romney have to do to win the state. >> he has to win over a lot of afluent voters necessary suburbian areas that haven't voted republican in the last couple of presidential election. areas with which republicans used to win but trended democratic over the last 20 years. on the cultural issues and he has to win them over economic and stewardship and foreign policy get the white nonblue collar. obama campaign baraged ohio with ads. biggest anti-romney ads he's outsourced job to china and he fired me and my wife got cancer and all of that sort of thing. they have seen it in ohio and white noncollege voters in ohio are considerably not likely to support romney than in other states.

in the state of ohio. on the republican side, governor romney has been all throughout the state. but he will hit three battleground states in total today. first ohio, iowa and later wisconsin. paul ryan, the vice-presidentialal nominee is crisscrossing florida with three events across the state after he spent two days, friday and saturday throughout the state of ohio. but thng a back seat to sandy. maria molina live in the fox news extreme weather center with the latest on the track for sandy. maria, what do you see this hour. >> bill, good to see you. unfortunately sandy is coming. it is a very large storm system like we've been mentioning. over 800 miles wide. ism packs will be felt in portions of great lakes and west of michigan. waves are building 25 feet because of the storm system by early tuesday morning. portions of west virgina under a blizzard warning. we're expecting two to three feet of? factor that with strong winds you're talking about whiteout conditions across portions of the state of west virgina. toward the coast we're dealing with potential flooding across the d.c., b
that from the romney campaign, they can talk about how they surge ahead in ohio but they clearly are not. the national polls that show romney doing well, a lot of what i hear it shows him rising in states that haven't seen advertising and people have warmed a bit to him. that doesn't matter. he's unable to break through the glass like he needs to in ohio. watch where the most campaigning happens as much as you watch the polls. >> he very good advice. thanks, guys. good to see you both. >> thank you. >> and we'll be right back.

at ohio where the fact mitt romney was against the auto bailout, that mitt romney writes an article and says let detroit go interrupt, that's a severely conservative position. the fact mitt romney said he wanted to see roe vs. wade overternove overturned, that's a seriously conservative position. the fact that is they're severely conservative and far away from where the majority of the american people are. it's very important in this campaign that people understand their choices. >> bill clinton, obviously, very important to shore up the base. let's talk about the impact of hurricane sandy. do you agree that it could hurt the democrats more? that the obama campaign has depended so much on the ground game, and if that gets disrupted in some of these key states, it would be a disadvantage more to the president than it would be to romney "nightly newmitt romn? >> i will say the obama campaign has put together the most effective, well thought out and planned get out the vote campaign ground game i've ever seen, and i certainly hope it does not get severely disrupted. you know, if you're
there instead. romney has canceled tomorrow's events in ohio, but he hit avon lake earlier today. >> people of the entire nation are counting on ohio, because my guess is that if ohio votes me in as president, i'll be the next president of the united states. >> since the conventions romney has held 27 events in ohio over 12 days. i sent ryan there for 19 events and the president has been there seven times for 10 events. no republican has ever won the white house without ohio, no democrat has done it since jfk. ohio is an important state. when we talk about the state we haven't discussed in this table is the importance of a ground game. the having field offices throughout a state and the things that they can do getting people to the polls and getting information about the candidates. obama's lead in the ground game is massive. obama has 800 field offices throughout the nation, romney only has 300. in ohio the difference is massive, 137-39. this continues throughout the states. you see ohio, florida, colorado. obama's lead is massive. obama built the largest grassroots organization that polit
't for the auto bailout romney would probably be ahead in ohio. >> bill: chrysler has announced that do plan to build a plant in china to sell jeeps to chinese customers, but they are not going to shut down plants here they are not going to stop selling jeeps to americans or whatever. this is a total different situation of their business. >> and the romney campaign has obviously carefully worded that phrase in the commercial putting jobs in china as opposed to moving jobs so they could have some kind of defense. >> bill: finally you mentioned a little bit about momentum before. there were a lot of stories last week, and romney himself was talking about we're on a role. i'm going to win, and when i'm president, not if i'm president. some of which have been soft pedalled by members of the media. what is the feeling in the romney campaign about momentum? it is just bluff? or do they think they are ahead? >> most of it is just bluff. i don't think that they have some huge crushed momentum and both candidates do that all the time. so rhetorically they say it but they know prob
some impact. not good for obama. romney what to cancel appearances in ohio, which were important to him. he did go to iowa, which indicates how close iowa really is. we'll talk about that a little bit, him getting in the "des moines register" endorsement, which is important i think. the other thing romney decided to do is do fund raising in the effected states which make sense. in the end, the president of the united states is commander-in-chief. he gets to take center stage. it only helps him. >> kimberly: dana? >> dana: from a political standpoint, romney's e-mail that went out to -- i'm not on the list but a friend sent it to me saying don't donate to our campaign, if you have time and resources available send it to the red cross. check on your neighbors. from a media standpoint, this storm is rightly going to stake center stage. my sister is in colorado. if you're in colorado, swing state or any of the other swing states, the ads are unbearable in terms of the amount of negative ads. i think both of the campaigns would be smart to take negative ads off the airwaves right now. my sis

in the battlegrounds and that effectively the race is frozen. now governor romney was out in ohio today, campaigning, making some arguments about the auto bailout which has been an issue that's helped president obama in the state of ohio. but the problem for mitt romney and anyone else participating in the campaign right now is all the coverage is drowning out anything that politicians say. we are locked in a very tight race. we had two new polls out this morning, tracking polls. one, the washington post/abc news poll showed mitt romney 49%-brah 49%-barack obama 48%. another poll shows pro seciselye opposite. obama 48%. but they're the same poll. with a margin of error, we have essentially a tie race but the obama team believes that their advantage is in the battleground states like iowa, states like nevada, states like ohio that mitt romney needs and we'll see whether they are right. but as of now, it appears unlikely that things are going to move very much over the next couple of days because romney's canceled campaign events tomorrow, so has the president. >> when we talk about the sort of being
made stopings to florida and northern ohio. mitt romney also cancelled his virginia stops and rerouted himself to ohio, where he joined running mate paul ryan. >> today, when we get home, put into the prayers the people in the east coast in the wake of the big storm that's coming. >> let's not forget the fellow americans of ours. at a second rally in finley, romney talked about the storm. >> i know some people around the country are about to be nervous about the storm. thoughts and prayers of people who fought themselves out of harm's way. >> with the race in dead heat, most candidates plan to hit as many battle grounds as possible. the storm will determine exactly when and where they will get there. drew levinson, cbs news. >> good evening. , everybody. sure, we made it all the way to 85 degrees in brentwood. now high doppler and search of raindrops. the day the rain arrives as "eyewitness news" continues right here on cbs 5. ,,,, ,, ,,,,,,,,,, >>> things will change, right, roberta? >> today, earlier at christy field, we have a high temperature of 76 degrees. if you missed it, this i

: on sunday in ohio mitt romney and paul ryan took a break from their campaign message to talk about hurricane sandy barreling toward the east coast. >> let's today when we get home put in our prayers the people who are on the east coast, in the wake of this big storm that's coming. [ applause ] >> let's not forget those fellow americans of ours. >> reporter: the hurricane caused romney to cancel three rallies sunday in the battleground state of virginia and to make available his campaign bus to distribute supplies. romney then headed to another must-win state ohio, where ryan was already campaigning. >> i know they're chant human being -- chanting "nine more years," but we're chanting "nine more days." >> nine more days! >> reporter: recent polls averaged together show romney trailing the president by two points. in sunday the state's republican governor john kasich said romney has the momentum. >> i believe right now we are currently ahead. internals show us currently ahead. honestly think that romney's going to carry ohio and you know i haven't been saying t
the events together. mayor ron is going forward with the events in ohio and iowa today -- mr. romney is going the events in ohio iowa today. they are collecting supplies for in virginia and a being used for efforts. on the hurricane that there is other news we need to update you on. an investigation in falls church found in ay was burned home at 4:00 a.m.. the flames were so intense that -- that a nearby home was also damaged. coming up next, we'll continue coverage of hurricane sandy. wwill check in with their crews on the roads and beaches and jacqui jeras will have the on the storm track. at 395.a look on the storm track. at [ minto ] you know, those ads saying mitt romney would ban all abortions and contraception seemed a bit extreme. si looked into it. turns out, romney doesn't oppose contraception at all. in fact, he thinks abortion should be an option in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother's life. this issue's important to me, but i'm more concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ r
, the former president campaign for him in youngstown, ohio instead. it looks like mitt romney is going to be hunkering down in ohio a state he needs to be better in. president obama is going to be stuck at the white house. and he went to florida tonight so he could be in place for a rally tomorrow. he may regret going there at all because he'll be coming back to the white house to monitor the storm, but it's going to be halting a lot of political activity going forward into wednesday. maybe even thursday, but right now the white house is looking at canceling even more events, potentially another event that the president was going to be having in wisconsin on tuesday night. so, it looks like we're coming to a stand still for a couple of days here. >> geraldo: so, you have both governor romney and president obama trying to balance the fact that the election is eight, nine days away, with the, first of all, the perception that they have to be paying attention, they have to be-- the president literally has to be there in command as commander-in-chief, it's a very, very difficult balancing
